A Century of Field Studies in Asia
The French School of Asian Studies was founded in 1900 in Saigon. The mission of the EFEO is interdisciplinary research on the civilizations of Asia, extending from India to Japan. A network of seventeen research centers in twelve Asian countries allows its 42 research scholars (anthropologists, archaeologists, linguists, historians and others) to carry out their fieldwork while maintaining a network of local specialists and Asianists from around the world.
